Duet on the Cliffs of St. Kildan

They were known to navigators in ancient times as "the islands at the edge of the world." An archipelago of giant rock islands, 100 miles out into the ocean from Scotland. For 3,000 years the islands were home to the St. Kildan people, Gaelic speakers and "famously accomplished climbers." The last of the St. Kildans left the islands in 1930. Now, an opera tells their story, and this dance.


This is an amazing dance and history. Things like this should never be forgotten and be relived every time. Arts like this is much more fascinating than laws such as Supreme Court campaign finance ruling states and emphasize. Things that have contributed big for the culture and civilization of people should always be given attention and importance.
